I was her patient for colonoscopy. When she came to the room, she said I have history of neuropathy, my husband and I looked at each other and said huh? because I was very sure I had no such condition. Then she apologized because she was looking at somebody else's record. I guess it was too late for me to change my mind since I did all the prep and was already had my ivy and all. Then after my procedure she briefly told me that everything was ok and to come back in 10 years. My husband and I barely saw her. I thought that was find since everything went well. BUT after a week, I got an email from her telling me that she found a samll polyps and the it was the precancerrous type and forgot to put it in the report! Duh? Sorry for the confusion. How incompetent! She doesn't even care. I will never go back to her!
I have been a patient of hers for over 10 years at various clinics. She is capable, but stiicks to a general diagnosis without exploring other options of treatment. Also, last colonoscop y I awoke in the middle of procedure while turning me. She said she couldn't complete as device would not extend further. I had to have a virtual colonoscopy to fcomplete the procedure. She had no problems previously. That was unpleasant and I won't be returningreturning to her.
Dr. Carol Murakami performed both an endoscopy and a colonoscopy on me last year. It was my first time having these procedures. She was very thorough in her exams, diagnosis and follow-up. Both procedures were a breeze and I awoke from sedation with no pain, discomfort or memory of the procedure. Dr. Murakami's diagnosis was very accurate. She showed me pictures and explained her findings. She recommended I take Prevacid. I had some redness in my esophagus and gastric pain from elevated pancreatic and liver enzymes due to too much alcohol consumption. I Stopped drinking wine and all of my symptoms disappeared. She had me come in to her office to re-test my enzymes and they were normal. Many thanks to Dr. Murakami. She's very professional.
Very poor bedside manners. Doesn't seem to care at all for the patient. She never called me with CT scan results. She needs a lesson in humanity.
Everyone has a bad day. I am not sure what happened in the case of the CT scan results but I am very conscientious about getting back to my patients with regards to their results. I also question the validity of these comments as below is a rating from a person that I have never seen.
